Plan for added travel time over Snoqualmie Pass, rock blasting closures next week

WSDOT and contractor crews will close I-90 for rock blasting at 8 p.m. each night for about an hour Monday, July 21 through Thursday, July 24. Westbound traffic will be stopped at Gold Creek (milepost 56) and eastbound traffic will be stopped at Price Creek (milepost 61).

Intermittent rolling slowdowns are planned Monday through Friday during the day about four miles east of the Snoqualmie Pass Summit (milepost 56) around Keechelus Lake (milepost 61).

Daytime and nighttime lane closures in both directions could cause delays for drivers between Denny Creek (milepost 47) and the Price Creek vicinity (milepost 62 to 65) Monday through Friday. Intermittent ramp closures at the Cabin Creek and Stampede Pass interchanges will occur from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday.
